Where to mount all mountain/cruising skis
I'm turning my old skis (Boone twins) into my ski for midwest powder days and trips out west. I have a pair of dead center park skis so these skis will be exclusively for midwest powder and cruising. The dimensions are 125/93/119. Where would anyone suggest i mount them?
I shred every where and have all my skis mounted -2.5 from center.
9thward LT 178
9thward RSP 183
9thward RDS 183
K2 Hellbent 179
seems to work for me as a preference. I use the RDS the most over the past 2 years, 113 underfoot and was my everyday basher.

If the ski is an all mountain ski, then just go by the recommended mark, that is where they ski the best at!
I would mount that ski -10 from core center.
Just kidding, they're not going to float regardless. haha.
Buy new skis.
He doesnt live out west, so he doesnt need crazy wide skis.
And to answer op's question. Recommended would be best if your not using them in the park at all.
They don't have a recommended mark, just a center point mark
call boone and ask them what the suggested point is. Usually skis are designed around a mount point, so they will probably have a number for you.
